comment Does `shutdown -P now` safely unmount a USB drive mounted to `/dev/sdb1`?
@dtmland, al disks are umounted before shutting down - after killing all user processes. Now, if the system starts again (as in the case of reboot) they can be mounted again on boot - or not, depending on configuration.

comment BASH: Special character '�' suddenly appeared (Ubuntu)
Bash, yes; but which terminal (xterm, gnome-terminal, whatever, there are a lot of them). To see LANG, type locale -v in your shell. Moreover, knowing the exact version of your OS would help.

comment BASH: Special character '�' suddenly appeared (Ubuntu)
Does not happen here... probably depend some strange LANG settings. In UTF-8 ñ is a two-bytes char, so you must have the terminal ignoring it. Which terminal are you using? How is LANG set?
